Im curious in an interview Jeff Ireland makes mention of "core players" and he is 2-3 away.
This got me thinking what are the core players on a football team(granted it might be different from team to team) however IMO I believe that these core players are QB,OT,DL(NT in 3-4),pass rusher,CB however if you look at the phins and try to ID the core players I come up with QB(henne),CB(smith-davis) and no others.
Whats more curious is he mentions WR as a core so perhaps he is speaking of Offense core & defense core dont know.
So if anyone has some info on this pass it along.
In closing I have always felt very good football teams are built from the line out and as we look over the phins that has been an approach but history shows that every winning team needs QB,OL,Pass rusher and DB
so we'll see how it plays out.
